Usb ports do not recognize flash drives

Although I followed your instructions posted on 1/19/2008 and I uninstalled ports, then restarted computer, the ports still do not recognize any device I insert in the port (it started recognizing one flash drive then it stopped). I went to device manager and each port is reported to working properly!
What is wrong?

My computer doesn't recognize my dane-elec 8gb usb stick , although other usb devices do work.


1. Try a different USB port. If other ports recognize it, then the original port is fried. 2. Try a different computer. If the other computer does not recognize it, then your flash drive is damaged.

Good Luck!

My kingston 2 gb flash disk is not recognized, how can i fix it?


Please follow the below steps to fix your problem

1
Connect your flash drive to your computer using an available USB port. If your flash drive is not recognized, you'll usually receive an error that says "USB Device Not Recognized."

2
Click "Start" > "Control Panel" and open the system configuration by double-clicking the "System" icon.

3
Navigate to the "Hardware" tab and click the "Device Manager" button to open the Device Manager.

4
Click the "+" next to "Disk Drives" and locate your USB flash drive. A question mark icon should be shown to the left of the label. Right-click the device name and select "Uninstall."

5
Open the "Action" menu at the top of the Device Manager and select "Scan for hardware changes." This will scan your PC for any new devices. Because you uninstalled the flash drive, it will be detected as a new device and the drivers will be reinstalled.

6
Click "Start" > "My Computer" and look for your flash drive. If this process was successful, your flash drive should now show up under My Computer as a storage disk.

Hope the above information will be helpful to you.
Thanks.

I just bought a new Gateway NV53 laptop but my P4350 Lexmark all in one printer does not recognize any of the USB ports.


Did you check whether the USB ports are recognizing other USB devices such as Microvault or Flash Drive? If all other USB devices are recognized except the Printer, then reinstall the USB Drivers. You can uninstall the USB drivers from the Device Manager and restart the Computer. The USB Devices are listed under Universal Serial Bus Controllers in the Device Manager.

HP Pavilion zv6000: USB ports are inop. USB port on rear of computer works fine. USB port on left/front will power my flash drive, but the light stays on constantly. The flash drive is does NOT show up in...


After reading the description, I think you need to try updating BIOS and latest device drivers for USB. Because USB are getting power on that means there would not be any fault to from the motherboard.

So please try updating latest BIOS for your notebook.
If you can provide me the product no for your notebook and the operating system which you are using currently then I can find the one for you.

Otherwise you can also do the same.

Type in the product no. on www.hp.com. Then go to software and driver download page, select the proper OS and search in BIOS ROM pack available for your notebook.

I hope this will help.

To uninstall a device
  1. Open Device Manager.
  2. Double-click the type of device that you want to uninstall.
  3. Right-click the specific device you want, and then click Uninstall. You can also double-click the device, and then on the Driver tab, click Uninstall.
  4. In the Confirm Device Removal page, select Delete the driver software for this device if you also want to remove the device driver package from the driver store. .
    The Delete the driver software for this device option removes the package from the driver store. It does not remove the currently installed driver for any other operational devices that use the same driver. If you remove the driver from the store, and the device is connected to the computer again, Windows must search for a copy of the driver package in the standard search locations, including possibly prompting the user for media. This option is the equivalent of running the command: pnputil -d -f <package.inf>. For more information, see Remove a Driver Package from the Driver Store.
  5. Click OK to complete the uninstall process.
  6. When the uninstall process is complete, unplug the device from the computer.
    If you are prompted to restart the computer, the removal is not completed and the device might continue to function until the computer is restarted.
Reinstall a Plug and Play device Reinstall a device only if it is working improperly or it has stopped working altogether. Before you reinstall a device, try to restart your computer and check the device to determine whether it is functioning properly. If it is not, try reinstalling the device.
To reinstall a Plug and Play device
  1. Open Device Manager.
  2. Follow the instructions in the preceding procedure to uninstall the device.
  3. If you are prompted to restart the computer, follow these steps:
    • Plug in the device and then restart the computer. The device will be detected and reinstalled after Windows restarts.
    • Follow any instructions on-screen to complete installation.
  4. If you are not prompted to restart the computer, follow these steps:
    • In Device Manager, in the Action menu, click Scan for hardware changes.
    • Follow the instructions on the screen.

SanDisk not recognized by computer


Follow these steps:
  1. Go to START > Right-click My Computer > PROPERTIES
  2. On the tabs, click Hardware > DEVICE MANAGER
  3. Press the + sign next to the Universal Serial Bus controllers.
  4. Doubble-click the first one
  5. When the new window comes up, click Drvers from the tabs, and click "uninstall"
  6. Repeat step 5 for all devices

If that doesn't work, then the USB ports on your computer are dead. You can try to get new USB hardware at a computer store to plug into your computer (THIS IS NOT THE SAME AS A USB HUB!)
